Joining - ’In Year’ Admissions

We are oversubscribed in all year groups so it may not be possible to offer a place, however an application can be made at any time throughout the academic year for any year group. The chances of obtaining a place are stronger if you are living in our catchment area, although this is still not guaranteed. Our catchment area is:

• the area of Norton-Radstock known as “Westfield”
• the villages of Clutton, Farmborough, Farrington Gurney, Hallatrow and High Littleton.

If an application is refused, parents have the right to appeal against the decision to an Independent Appeals Panel.

Please note that we will not accept applications for entrance into Year 11 at any time of the academic year, due to the fact that GCSEs consist of modules undertaken over a 2 year period. It is exceptionally unlikely that an exact match of subjects and modules could be made between different schools and therefore the pupil’s chances of success are extremely low. If possible, we would strongly recommend completing Year 11 at an existing school and considering Midsomer Norton Sixth Form from Year 12.
